The Wayback Machine -- Hardware

We've received many requests for more information about our hardware.

Our source has been the fine people at mericomp.com

The HP computers were about $1180 each. A rack holds 32 (without a switch) so that's $37760 per rack. The racks with switches can only hold 31 and the switch is about $3000 so those racks are $39580 each.

The new computers are about $1620 each. That's assuming 8 - 120 GB drives in each machine which is not 100% true but what we are shooting for. A rack holds 20 (without a switch) so that's $32,400 per rack. The racks with switches can only hold 19 and the switch which is about (less ports) $2000 so those racks are $32780.

All of these figures exclude the cost of the electrical build out, HVAC, cabling, physical racks and shelves.
